It's Live (New Nike NFL Apparel)

Recommended Posts

GI've it time - the NFL shop mentions that new Nike merchandise will continue to be posted.

I'm pretty sure that they'll make those tshirts for all teams.

I love that Nike isn't lazy like Reebok and pick some stupid font and use on all clothing for all the teams. Nike actually did the sensible thing and used each team's specific font.

Developing a custom unique font is lazier than using existing team fonts?

I was talking more about the production of the apparel. I would think it's a lot easier producing apparel using one font than it would be using 30 different fonts. Also, it's not like the fonts they came up with were really unique or detailed. They looked pretty basic and plain.

Reebok produced shirts with team wordmarks as well. I have several of them. It's amazing how short term memories disappear once Nike gets involved.

Nike makes a whole bunch of shirts with their "just do it" font. Does that make them lazy?

Yes.

And crass. And self-serving. And a whole host of other unpleasant things.

its only the first set of apparel. That's Nike's main "motto" or whatever, so I think it was a perfect way to introduce itself into the NFL world.

wrong script on the back of this hat...but overall a very sick hat, in my opinion

Edit: nvm I just found the shirts and sadly, the Pats still have silver.

Yeah the Pats were supposed to be getting a new Sliver or something ?

It looks darker on the shirts, but white on the hats.

It looks like it isn't there any more, but last night the Denver Broncos jersey section had white Manning jerseys that featured no side panels.

It would have been really great if Nike didn't use that font on college and MLB shirts throughout the last 12 months.

I saw a green Seahawks hat on newera.com with the "new" logo thats no longer up as well. Interesting. So was the jersey a normal broncos road jersey just sans the panels?

That's what I recall it looking like. Wish I had been smart enough to screencap. Mostly because I wanted to see if any of the many more knowledgeable people on here could tell me whether it was just some fashion jersey or something. But it's odd that it's been taken down now.

Also, this:

This appears to be what I was looking at last night. It lists three items but they don't show up, and they're all white Manning jerseys like I saw last night.

Crap, none of the stores in Gainesville have any Bucs hats (but they have other teams). Surprising and disappointing...

the plain jersey you were talking about was the "Pro line" jersey that the nfl created to make up for the reebok that they supposedly couldnt make or sell anymore...but then they made a bunch of reebok tebow jerseys...so who knows. And that Tebow Jets t-shirt, is not nike.

Man, wasn't Nike supposed to blow Reebok's graphic offering away and show people how it was supposed to be done? Highly underwhelming.

One change I'm very happy about is that they're not doing the stupid baseball arch in an inaccurate font on the t-shirt NOBs. That drove me crazy.

Then:

Now:

OTOH, I'm sure as hell not paying $31.99 for that.

Thought the exact same thing when I saw the lack of an arched name!

that's the "eligible receiver" tee. it's unbranded. if you look on NFL shop, they have a similar one for peyton manning.

i think it was just made as a placeholder between reebok and nike. so not saying the jets font definitely won't change, i just don't think this is an indication that it definitely will.

Probably just another error. I highly doubt the Jets are going to incorporate a gray trim to their uniforms.

However, IF true, Nike wins if NYJ is getting new-ish uniforms following the Reebok-Tebow debacle.

Gray version now up: http://www.nflshop.com/product/index.jsp?productId=12838811&cp=2237612.2246863&pageType=family&parentPage=family
